Is 'Game Of Thrones' the most pirated show on earth?

Low-resolution versions of four of the season's 10 episodes began appearing on piracy sites over the weekend and were downloaded more than a million times before the first episode even aired.

HBO said in a statement to Mashable on Sunday, "Sadly, it seems the leaked four episodes of the upcoming season of 'Game of Thrones' originated from within a group approved by HBO to receive them," meaning the leaked episodes were probably from an early copy sent to TV critics for review.

According to, 'Game Of Thrones' is the most pirated show on earth. "We're talking a 45 percent jump from last year, with more than 7 million downloads since Feb. 5. Compare that to 4.9 million in the same time last year", part of the report reads.

The report cited Australia as one of the list of top countries illegally downloading "Game of Thrones".
